{a pocketful of lollipops}

cheerful & fresh
flower prints
today I added a touch of whimsy
to my .50 cent
flea market apron

{sometimes the day just calls for a wee bit of the sugary stuff}

hope your day is a sweet one!

Just like you to post a little pop of sweetness! Oh and your guest blog over at C&C was amazing, as usual your words inspire me!

Some of my very best gems were found in thrift shops and flea markets! Cute apron.
And I wish you a big bucket of lollipops, Koralee, because you always make me smile.

Fleamarkets, hmmm, i love them, but haven't been to one in a while. Maybe this weekend? This apron is pretty, and so is your post ;)

Oh again, great photo and a great quick message that inspires in great proportions, Koralee. I need this right now as I am trying to survive the next 5 weeks of school. Not my best year, but, I hope that I can learn from this and move on!

BISOUS, Anita

The problem is ...now you will have a line of neighbor kids following you. But then, you probably have that already!

Koralee: What a spring-has- sprung, pretty-as-a coloring-box image! My mom and I actually ate a ton of these on our recent trip to Mississippi. Tootsie Pop has come out with a bunch of new flavors ~ and colors ~ and at only 60 cals a pop, they are nice when you need that little something sweeeet! xx P&H

myletterstoemily said...

the only thing that's sweeter than your

I so love that sugary stuff I know I don't need, but want anyway! I especially loved those when I was young. A good "pop" of sugar!

50 cent apron!!! Wowee it's gorgeous, I love it, well done you! I always think it's so smart to get great things for next to nothing. Funny to think the lollies probably cost more!

Wishing you lovely weekend! :-)

So darling! The colors are so bright and cheery!

Jermaine said...

I always know I will leave here more cheerful than I came. You really know how to give a heart a lift! Your photos are always sooooo amazing and I just noticed that one in your sidebar with the yellow tulips and black tights {on someone's very cute legs} and the punch of royal blue. I love the colors and composition.

I'm just catching up on blog reading. It sounds like you have a busy month in May too. That's a sweet photo of the lollipops in the apron pocket. It reminds me of my grandma.
Blessings,

T's Daily Treasures said...

My 11 year old would have those lollipops gone in no time. I bought whistle pops the other day to give to the Indian lady in our front office who takes care of the kitchen and cleaning. She has two grandsons. But my Zack managed to get the package open, without asking, before I could even get it to her. Instead of 4, she got two for her grandsons. :) Hope you have a super sweet Friday! Tammy

Emily Pickle said...
